Clitheroe Schools

Every year parents of kids requiring to go to a Clitheroe school in Lancashire for the first time, or moving up to a new school or college are having to make tough decisions on the subject of their child's upcoming schooling requirements. Which school in Clitheroe should I place my child? It is a testing choice to make as it can have a profound positive/negative end product on how your child develops throughout childhood and as a result a huge consequence on that offspring as he or she passes into later life.

So how do you select a particular school from the Clitheroe region?

  • From time to time it is effortless if your son/daughter already has a sibling or siblings who will be at the school when your other child starts or older siblings previously attended the school.
  • Your closeness to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may perhaps want to send off your offspring to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Religious Schools
  • Your child attended an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and other establishments choose a proportion of their pupils on scholastic ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)

On the whole most parents decisions are based on the quality of the school and the nearness of the school to your location or work location, if it's easy to drop your son/daughter off in the mornings for example.

On the surface of things - the value of a school is by and large determined by results which are published each and every year in all of the regular newspapers. It's a simple matter of comparing one schools results alongside one another from the Clitheroe area. Of course as everyone knows data are generally flawed to some degree or other. Kids results for a particular school may be twisted for lots of different reasons

  • Quality of intake to the school
  • Several Examination boards
  • Expulsions to school
  • Quality of Teaching
  • Type of School
  • Social impact of surrounding area
  • Over/Under subscribed

So there are in fact lots of variables that can increase/decrease a schools performance.

Ofsted is an legitimate body which writes reports on schools in the Clitheroe area as well as the rest of the UK. In a nutshell these reports will disclose how the school is doing, as well as showing that the school is improving or not. Take into account your offspring is to be expected to attend a Clitheroe Primary or Clitheroe Secondary school for quite a few years, so it's important to identify if a school is improving or not.

By a schools bureaucrat reports and results is a decent initial mode of weeding out the wheat from the chaff, after that it is vital you go and go to see the potential new school on their open day. This is a fantastic way to find out more about the schools policies, its philosophy and it will also allow you to put questions straight to the head of the school.
